Due to Popular demand, the Bob Rogers ‘50th Anniversary Beatles Special’ will be replayed at 12 midday this Saturday June 14 as a part of our Beatles feature weekend on 2CH 1170.
The Beatles touched down in Australia on Wednesday June 11, 1964. A week earlier 2CH’s Bob Rogers, then a DJ with radio station 2SM, had flown to London to accompany The Beatles on their tour of Australasia and file daily reports for the radio station. Bob has since been quoted calling that tour “like a journey through insanity”.
‘Beatlemania’ took hold of this country and Bob was caught in all the madness that followed. Chased by screaming fans, trapped inside their hotel rooms then paraded before the media and huge crowds on flat-bed trucks, balconies and boats, Bob Rogers was beside the Beatles every step of the way. It was a life-changing event for Bob and a generation of Australians who had never witnessed anything like it.
Exclusively on 2CH 1170, join Bob Rogers again this Saturday June 14 at 12 midday when he presents The 50th Anniversary Beatles Special. It’s a one hour documentary that will take you inside that historic tour. It features Bob’s exclusive interviews with the band, their manager Brian Epstein, and a view from ‘inside the bubble of Beatlemania’ by the man they called ‘The Fifth Beatle’.
Join Bob Rogers for a fascinating trip down memory lane.
